First of all, usually movies like this aren't realistic or able to make people relate to the characters or situations but this film actually did the opposite. There were situations in this film that certain people could easily relate to. Of course, nobody has received letters from their dead significant other but they can at least relate to what Holly is going through. It depicts how somebody might react to losing somebody that is very close to them. The acting done by everybody really helped with that. With every scene, you could easily tell how they were feeling in that moment even if they weren't speaking. You could just tell through their faces and body. The acting between the two leads had to be good because you needed to feel like these two really loved each other and they succeed. In every scene that you see Holly and Jerry together, you believe that they are a happy couple and would do anything for the other. There were some problems though. One was the pacing of the film. Now this one mainly is affected by the scenes in this film and how they didn't really connect anything. They just jumped around with zero transitions at all. There also was a bunch of time jumps so you couldn't figure out what was going on and where Holly was in her life. Some of the side characters were annoying and unnecessary. In the end, they really were just there to be her "support" during this rough time. Finally, as much as I loved the couple I wish we saw them more. You see them together for a bit but I think it would have hit home if they showed them together because then the audience would be more sympathetic to Holly. In the end, this is a great Valentines day movie to watch either by yourself or with your significant other. I give P.S. I Love You a 8/10.
